Today is Day 15 of my HIIT the New Year Hard Workout Challenge. Tonight's workout is a full body routine, that emphasizes rounding and shaping your tush. Even though it's focused on tightening and toning your behind this workout also incorporates ab and arm toning as well.
I prefer compound movements because they allow you to work a variety of muscles at one time. This creates functional strength, while also providing an aesthetically pleasing physique.
It's been a while since I incorporated weights into my workouts. As always, you can complete this workout with body weight only. I tried to keep my primary focus on form throughout the workout. If you have followed my workouts for a while you know I always emphasize proper form, but this is particularly true any time you are using weights.
I followed this workout with a run on the treadmill. I decided to do mile repeats. I ran one mile at a time, followed by a rest break equal to half of my mile time. I ran my first mile in 6 minutes and 35 seconds, and I rested for 3 minutes and 15 seconds before running my second mile. I actually picked up the pace a bit for miles 2 and 3, because I was feeling great and wanted to increase the challenge.
I hope you guys enjoy it! I have more fun recipes for you so be sure to check back!
